Coffee or Cup ? - A Beautiful message

I found this forwarded mail and wanted to share in my blog. Good one.

A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor.

Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in work and life.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went to the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal, some plain looking, some expensive, some exquisite - telling them to help themselves to hot coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in hand, the professor said: "If you noticed, all the nice looking expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap ones. While it is but normal for you to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems and stress. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups and were eyeing each other's cups.

Now if life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain Life, but the quality of Life doesn't change. Sometimes, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it."

Don't let the cups drive you... Enjoy the coffee instead!

Photography for Modelling - An Attempt

Myself and Nish had a friend at home last weekend. That is when we tried our hands on Costume Designing and Photography . Venkat wanted few profile photographs for his personal use. Nish was proactive in setting up a studio setup in our terrace for photoshoot. He also grabbed hats, googles, hair gels, different outfits , woolen shawl etc ... I set up my camera for the same.

We chose a white background. We planned for 3 stills for each style of costume. Venkat was very cooperative and was bold enough to face Nish's costume session and my camera lenses. I have to mention , Nish was then badly hurted in a minor accident. But he was very much involved when he was getting Venkat ready for shoot without minding his injuries. Hats off.

Finally Venkat was happy about the shoot. Myself and Nish are planning to set up a studio for modelling shoots for GUYS (y?? No gals allowed.. I'm bit possesive and crazy about Nish. I dont want him to design costume for girls ;) !) he he

Pass on your comments, Thanks a lot.

Note : Posting few casual pictures taken during the shoot along with the original work.

BlueSky, you and I - Video and lyrics

"Neela vaanam neeyum naanum

Kangalea bashaiyayi kaigaley aasi ayaai
Vaiyyamae koilyilaai vaanamae vaayilaai
Paalveli paayiley sainthu naam kooduvom
Inni nee endru naan endru iru veru aalillaiyae
Neela vanam ….
Neeyum naaa..anum ….

Saayorae.. Thari.. Rutha .. Hey hey..
Etheatho desangalai searkkindra nesamthannai
Nee paathi naan paathiyaayi korkkindra pasamthannai
Kaathal endru paer suttiyae kaalam thantha sontham ithu
Ennai polae pen kuzhanthai unnai pol oru aan kuzhanthai

Naam vazhntha vazhvirku sandravathu innoru uyir thaanadi
Neela vaanam nee ee ee yum naanum

Pallaandu pallaandu pallaayirathu aandu
Pala kodi nooru aayiram
Palaandu pallaandu pallaayirathu aandu
Pala kodi nooru aayiram
Pallaandu pallaandu pallaayirathu aandu
Pala kodi nooru aayiram

Aaratha kaayankalai, aatrum nam nesamthannai
Vaazhaatha sogamgalai maayitheedum mayamthanai
Seyyum vinthai kaathalukku kai vanthathoru kalai thaanadi
Unnai ennai otri otri uyir seyum maayamum athu thaanadi
Naam vazhntha vazhvirku sandravathu innoru uyir thaanadi
Neela vaanam neeee.. eyum naanumm"
